Oppo Find X5 Pro review: slick Android let down by weak camera zoom

Great performance and battery life, held back by cost, camera and lack of software polish

The Find X5 Pro costs £1,049 and won’t be sold in the US. It replaces last year’s Find X3 Pro (there was no X4) and is packed with all the things you expect from a top-flight phone.
